Meal Prep Monday – Like A Boss

madrid

This week is busier than normal (I’m sure you could say the same) I usually take about an hour to prep some meals for the week.  It works really well on Sundays for my family because we are usually relaxing for the afternoon and have left overs for dinner, but feel free to do this whenever is convenient for you.

First up Crockpot Shredded Chicken – I placed 3 chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper and garlic powder along with about 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth on low for about 6 hours until the chicken can be easily shredded.  Then I just put in my mixer with the paddle blade and poof in just a few seconds its all shredded!

I have a go to recipe for Cauliflower Rice but decided to roast it in the oven instead of microwaving and then sautéing.  I actually like this way better I think.  First I blitzed in a food processor, seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and then roast on parchment paper at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes then turn with spatula and roast for another 8 minutes

While the Cauliflower Rice was roasting I chopped up some sweet potatoes for my favorite way to have them HERE

So this recipe was a complete experiment with what I had on hand.  I specifically did not want to put any breadcrumbs in to see what it they would be like.  Feel free to add 1/4-1/2c of bread crumbs if you would like a binder in these

1 lb of ground turkey (or chicken)

1 egg

4T cocunut aminos (or low sodium soy sauce)

1 t. siracha

1 t. ginger

1 t. garlic

salt and pepper

red pepper flakes

Combine and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  They are not the prettiest thing, but they turned out really yummy!

The last thing I did was make a few salad in a jar.  I have no idea the science behind it but salads in mason jars stay fresh for me the whole week.  These were made with shaved brussels sprouts, chopped peppers, and chopped romaine.FullSizeRender
